Adam Rooney appears to have shut down rumours he’s a target of English Championship side Brentford.
The Aberdeen striker was linked with the Greater London club after Brentford’s B-team fielded an attacker of the same name in their 3-1 victory away to Reading yesterday.
However, the 29-year-old, who is contracted to Aberdeen under 2020, insists the player in question was not him.
Taking to his Twitter feed, Rooney gave his best Donald Trump impression in shooting down the story.
He wrote: “As trump would say FAKE NEWS!! There does be some [poo emoji] on here at times!!”
Rooney has slipped down the pecking order at Pittodrie since the signing of Stevie May, but has still managed to feature 11 times this season.
